THE SOUL AND THE FLESH
[Recorded in 2017 with parts created in 2005 & 1998]

Late-March 2017 it dawned that it had been 20 years since Paul grabbed a bass guitar for the first time and created his solo project F8!
To celebrate this he jumped in to release all the rarities no-one ever got to see or hear (except for a few insiders). In addition to releasing four collections also available here (1997's A D8 With F8, 1998's Pronounced: F8, 1999's Addictions, and 2000's A Star Is Miscarried), to celebrate this two decade anniversary, new tracks were recorded and some resurrected for this, 2017's The Soul And The Flesh.
Very much in the vein of the F8 ethic (but with a few things learned along the way), this five track package includes a homage to porn star Christy Mack, a one minute burst of blasting grinding goodness (with groove), a driving sinful tune, a new improvised seven minute Trancy synth piece (the F8 stamp added with bass embellishment), plus a trippy soundburst.

about

F8 Cape Town, South Africa

in 1997 V.O.D drummer Paul bought a bass guitar while the band was touring Europe (with Katatonia and In The Woods). On returning to South Africa he started creating music on his own terms, with no restrictions. Anything goes. Coining the term Tekno-Grind for this solo project (which only utilizes bass guitars), the initial intention for what it would sound like resulted in an eclectic beast! ... more

Don't act upon your instincts
It's a sin!
We'll decide your boundaries
For salvation, to let you in

Don't ever think of pleasure
It's a sin!
We'll condemn you to hell
With glee, and a grin

Don't be stifled by those fuckers
Committing their private sins
Behind their closed doors
Hypocrisy seeps from their skin

You're only as sinful,
As your conscience allows
From murder, lies and robbery
To breaking your vows

Ignore their accusations
And self-righteous indignation
You know better what's inside your heart
Than those in self-appointed stations

Their moral judgement, keeps them in business
They're dependent on all sins
To legitimize and to monetize
So live your life, don't let them win
